To enjoy a gourmet journey to China without even leaving Paris, run to Tse Yang in Paris 16th arrondissement. On the menu, high-quality Chinese cuisine between tradition and modernity.

Nestled avenue Pierre 1er de Serbie, in the fancy neighborhoods, a stone’s throw from the Palais de Tokyo and the Palais Galliera, the Tse Yang restaurant – praised for gourmet Chinese cuisine for years – has undergone a makeover this past Fall. Once you walked the door kept by two majestic stone lions, discover the fully renovated venue, redesigned with a lot of taste and contemporary elements, without swiping tradition aside.

Shiny black here, golden wood paneling there, mirrors and orange graphic ornaments, and in the lobby, a huge and modern chandelier standing above our heads. In the soft atmosphere of the main dining room, big round tables with the staple lazy Susan turntables are laid to welcome foodies. Welcome to Beijing in the heart of Paris.

Behind the stoves, chef Xie Nai Cai, coming straight from Hong Kong, marvelously jungles with the timeless Beijing, Cantonese and Shanghai food classics, while allowing himself bolder and more original dishes to delight everyone. Tse Yang also emphasizes wine pairing thanks to a skilled sommelier likely to help you out.

You cannot miss the unchanging dumplings you can choose steamed and coming in a lovely assortment of 6 pieces (€19) plated in a steam basket – vegetable dumplings, meat dumplings with Xiaolongbao broth, and shrimp Har Gau dumpling; so good! Good point to the wasabi king shrimps with thick, hearty and spicy flesh, careful the wasabi is strong!

Coming up, the purest Chinese tradition with Pecking duck (€64 for half a duck), cooked two ways – as it is in China. By the book, Tse Yang waiter comes to our table first with the crunchy duck skin and plates it before our eyes with fresh and crunchy vegetables with hoisin sauce in thin Mandarin flatbreads. And we ate it straight away!

Then comes the tasting as it should be: the tender and medium rare duck filet is stirred Chop Suey style, so good! As for our second main, we went for the Kung Pao shrimps (€39), slightly sweet and spicy, and plated with crunchy bell peppers we enjoyed with a side of Yangzhou fried rice (€15).

After this range of flavorsome mains, there is no room left for dessert, what a shame! But note although prices on the menu do not fit all budgets, Tse Yang has been offering two more affordable menus, for €39 and €69 for lunch, which composition changes with the seasons and the chef’s mood.

A genuine corner of China in Paris!
